The Pentagon has formally declared psychological warfare on the American people by announcing it will engage in propaganda and indoctrination by using the Internet and media to "set the record straight" on the war on terror. Recent history clearly indicates this is just the latest outreach of an insipid brainwashing agenda that is totally unlawful and anathema to the U.S. Constitution.
In the past, the military or the government did not announce that they were planting surreptitious propaganda to target U.S. audiences, they did it secretly and for a very good reason - because it was and still is illegal.
But since George W. Bush, backed by his renegade legal advisors, officially announced the end of the Republic and the birth of the "decidership," he can arbitrarily create out of thin air, ignore, or amend any law he likes and to all intents and purposes is above the Constitution and has ascribed to himself total dictator power. The only thing that remains is, in his own words, to " catapult the propaganda ," in an attempt to legitimize his absolute rule and assure the blind obedience of the American people to his junta's future desecrations of foreign lands and the bill of rights at home.
The new program is simply another wing of the Pentagon's Office of Strategic Influence , publicly announced after 9/11 but simply the latest incarnation of a PR brainwashing scam that spans back decades. The OSI exploited legal loopholes by planting its propaganda in foreign newspapers that would later be picked up by U.S. newswires. In today's environment even that seems quaint, with the Pentagon openly and proudly shouting from the rooftops that they will knowingly violate the law to indoctrinate the American people.
Perhaps the most alarming case of the military's information tentacles burrowing their influence deep into media circles in recent years was in February 2000, when another branch of the same Pentagon propaganda bureau, Psychological Operations Command (PSYOPS), had placed their operatives "in the news division at CNN's Atlanta headquarters as part of an “internship” program starting in the final days of the Kosovo War."
FAIR speculated that the purpose was twofold, one to directly propagandize the American people via CNN and also potentially to allow the "military to conduct an intelligence-gathering mission against the network itself," because the "military needed to find ways to "gain control" over commercial news satellites to help bring down an "informational cone of silence" over regions where special operations were taking place."
With the knowledge that government propagandists were utilizing U.S. news network hubs at CNN to run what was described as a "vast psychological warfare operation of the kind the military conducts to influence a population in enemy territory," and that this took place over six years ago - just imagine how infested today's networks and newsrooms are with paid agent provocateur propagandists whose sole job specification is to orchestrate methods of mind control over the population of the United States.
In October 2005 Government Accountability Office investigators concluded that the Bush administration's secret policy to pay off influential journalists to plant fake news and positive spin on Bush's policies was illegal and that the "administration had disseminated "covert propaganda" in the United States, in violation of a statutory ban."
The consequences were not the drafting of new legislation that would clearly outlaw such actions in future, nor any form of criminal proceedings against the protagonists. The upshot of it all was a slap on the wrist for Armstrong Williams and a request that he pay back part of the money that the government had given him - not even all of it.
"Armstrong Williams is going to pay back $34,000 to the government for work he failed to deliver, but who's going to pay the taxpayers for the rest of the quarter million dollars Williams was paid for his propaganda services to the administration?," asked Congressman George Miller, as the Justice Department hurried a settlement and swept the whole sordid affair under the rug.
Impromptu mass e mail circulations and talking points spread around messageboards and social networking websites that triumph the moral virtues of the war on terror have been rife for years and are clearly part of a gargantuan propaganda campaign that has been insipid for years but is only just being announced now.
Here are a couple you'll probably remember from the past few months.
A recent diatribe that was forwarded more times than an annoying "meet the love of your life" chain letter concerned a visit to the White House by a man who was overwhelmed by the intensely warm and gracious personality of George W. Bush, and astounded by the negative media stereotype of his nature. The man just felt the need to share his tear-jerking story of how the President shook him by the hand, looked in his eyes and made him feel like the most important person in the room - and by a miracle it just happened to bypass our spam guards and end up in tens of millions of Americans' inboxes.
Another example that similarly wormed its way through MySpace bulletin boards was an attempt at bolstering the credibility of the flagging war on terror and countering the progress of the 9/11 truth movement by simply listing terror attacks over the last three decades and their alleged perpetrators. A modified version of this was used in a speech by Bush propaganda architect Karl Rove just a week ago where he referenced terror attacks that had occurred before the invasion of Iraq, therefore attempting to absolve charges that the Iraq invasion provoked an increase in terrorism. So under that twisted logic, drug dealers shouldn't worry about creating more addicts by selling drugs because there were always drug addicts before them!
In both cases, as soon as you read the first paragraph of these screeds, the big fat stinking rat of covert government propaganda scuttled across the computer screen.
Now the modern day gang of Goebbels wannabees seek to sink their teeth even further into the last outpost of free speech - the Internet - and impose a blackout on any dissent under the auspices of "disseminating enemy propaganda."
The White House has made it perfectly clear that it will target American citizens for propagating information harmful to the interests of the U.S. government and classify them as enemy combatants. This is codified in sub-section 27 of section 950v. of the Military Commissions Act of 2006.
Bush's own strategy document for "winning the war on terror" identifies "conspiracy theorists," meaning anyone who exposes government corruption and its lies about major domestic and world events, as "terrorists recruiters," and vows to eliminate their influence in society.
In a speech given last Monday, Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff identified the web as a "terror training camp," through which "disaffected people living in the United States" are developing "radical ideologies and potentially violent skills."
Chertoff has pledged to dispatch Homeland Security agents to local police departments in order to aid in the apprehension of domestic terrorists who use the Internet as a political tool.
A program on behalf of CENTCOM is also underway to infiltrate blogs and message boards to ensure people, "have the opportunity to read positive stories,"presumably about how Iraq is a wonderful liberated democracy and the war on terror really is about protecting Americans from Al-CIAda.
The eminently hypocritical tenet of the Pentagon's justification for the propaganda program - that they need to correct "inaccurate statements" and "set the record straight" is borne out by the fact that they participated in the dissemination of the most lurid and damaging propaganda since Hitler's final speech - a deliberately fomented lie about weapons of mass destruction that killed 655,000 Iraqis and thousands of American soldiers.
How dare this gaggle of criminals lecture us about how the insurgents control the media while equating anyone who even mildly criticizes their bloodlust with being a terrorist?
They are the liars, they are the crooks, they are the propagandists and it is we the alternative media - the fifth estate - that should mobilize like never before to counter their spurious deception.

"Oh, gee willikers, we were just up here to check on Mr. Brown. We didn't mean any harm to anybody. Gosh! We just brought along the helicopters, tanks, and snipers because the boys get a thrill out of dressing up and scaring people. Surely you don't think we planned to kill those dear people, now do you?"
These moronic cops are devoid of conscience. Watch the video of the jack-booted idiot explaining the actions of the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Unit. These guys need to be bitch slapped for their stupidity and contempt for the Constitution and the rights of the Citizens. I know some older cops who call these young punk cops "candy asses".

Brown Siege May Be Psy Op
quoting Officer Jack McLamb:
"I am a warrior, I would like to go clean house and take our country back but I know their plan and I don't want to be a part of their plan to initiate the shut down of the wonderful wake-up that is going on in America today. If they kill this family we will have more people with us next week than they can even imagine."
(Keep in mind, people, that the "wackos" within our organizations are more-than-likely government-paid agents provocateur. Jack McLamb is a seasoned veteran of this struggle & understands the politics, spiritual ramifications, and dynamics of what is happening. Let's not play into the hands of the enemies of freedom by doing anything stupid.
Exclusive: Federal Assault On Brown Home Was Aborted
Man fired upon and captured tells story of being ordered by the FBI to lie to the media in an attempt to cover up the botched raid
Friday, June 8, 2007
Danny Riley, the man who was shot at and arrested after he discovered U.S. Marshals stalking Ed Brown's home, has revealed the amazing truth behind how he was threatened with 15 years in jail by the FBI unless he lied to the media to cover-up the fact that yesterday's events were a planned siege and not merely to serve a warrant as authorities had claimed.
Riley related in a video blog late yesterday how he had unwittingly stumbled across U.S. Marshals preparing to raid the Brown property as he left the house to take Ed Brown's dog for a walk. Riley was confronted by two men in camouflage who fired two shots at him as he attempted to run away, but was then tackled by 12 other armed Marshals who tasered and handcuffed him.
What happened after was carried in our article this morning, but the whole story exposes how the FBI had planned to orchestrate a violent raid on the Brown's property, before aborting the siege and attempting to use Riley, under intimidation that he would be jailed or even killed, as a go-between to sell the cover-story to the media that the authorities were merely serving a warrant.
Riley now fears for his life but has shown tremendous courage in coming forward to lift the lid and expose the lies that the New Hampshire police told the media in downplaying yesterday's events and hiding the fact that they were planning a raid.
Riley tells us that after he was arrested and taken to the Lebanon Police Department, he was told that authorities had been conducting surveillance of the Brown's home on Wednesday and that they knew the Brown's owned a 50 caliber rifle because they had observed Riley using it on the Brown's shooting range, while a squadron of snipers lay in wait should they have been discovered, aiming guns at Riley as he was being watched.
Riley was interrogated by two FBI officials who called themselves Phil and Mark, and was threatened with 15 years imprisonment if he told the media that the FBI were involved in the aborted raid on the Brown's property.
Riley was then ordered to lie to the media and tell them that during his morning walk, he had not seen armed U.S. Marshals but plain clothed police officers who were merely serving a warrant for the seizure of the Brown's dental office 10 miles away, and that the officers had simply tackled and not shot at or tasered him after he ran. Riley was told that if he didn't lie to the media he was facing certain prison time or even death.
Riley was then dropped off back at the Brown's home after the media had been allowed to approach the house. In an act of astounding courage, Riley ignored the media as they yelled questions at him and headed straight into the house to tell Ed Brown that the FBI had ordered him to lie.
Riley then emerged from the house and told the authorities what they wanted to hear - that he had relayed the cover story to the media. Riley was then dropped off at a bus station and told by authorities that if he returned to the scene he would either be imprisoned or killed.
Despite the fact that Riley bravely ignored the threats and did not relay the cover-story, the local media still bought the police's explanation that they had never planned to raid the house and that, after erecting roadblocks a mile around, evacuating neighbors, cutting the Brown's phone and power lines and deploying 6 helicopters along with a SWAT team and APC's, they were merely serving a warrant for an empty property 10 miles away.
Danny Riley is risking his life by telling the truth - that New Hampshire police, led by the FBI, had conducted prior surveillance of the property and were in place about to launch a violent siege against Ed and Elaine Brown before Riley's chance encounter with U.S. Marshals led officials to abort the raid and manufacture a cover-story which they then tried to intimidate Riley into selling to the local media.
This represents open fraud, deceit and extortion on behalf of New Hampshire police as well as the FBI and Danny Riley's testimony demands immediate attention from national as well as local media in the New Hampshire area.

PLAINFIELD – "What are they trying to do, start a war?" Ed Brown said of the police presence near his Plainfield home yesterday. "What do they think we have in here, tanks?"
Brown, who maintains there is no law that requires average American citizens to pay a direct tax on their wages, spoke to a group of reporters from a second-floor window in his house after a veritable army of heavily armed police officers and federal agents left the area around his rural home without ever making contact with him.
The government detained and questioned a man who discovered surveillance teams positioned around the house yesterday morning.
As Brown spoke, half a dozen helicopters made wide circles overhead.
"How does a foreign national army act in a country they are occupying?" Brown said. "These people are no different than our troops in Iraq. I feel bad for our troops over there."
Brown, who asserts that the federal government has no jurisdiction in New Hampshire and no authority to charge him under a non-existent law, said the activity surrounding his properties in Plainfield and West Lebanon yesterday was a "Zionist, Illuminati, Free Mason movement."
"I hope I don't see anybody up there with guns in the woods, because what am I supposed to do?" he said, citing a New Hampshire law that allows citizens to defend their property with deadly force.
Brown, who called his residence "a house of peace," said a friend took his dog for a walk at 8 a.m. yesterday and never came back.
"The dog came running back in a panic about 45 minutes later," he said.
His friend was taken into custody by federal agents after the man discovered surveillance activity on the property, according to U.S. Marshal Steve Monier.
Brown said the agents "kidnapped" his friend and "stole" his West Lebanon property.
Brown said he had an inkling Wednesday night that federal agents were planning something when he saw a low-flying police aircraft pass eastward over his house around 9:30 p.m. By yesterday afternoon, he said, his house telephone line and Internet service had been shut off and his cell phone rendered useless. All this because, as Brown sees it, he's standing up for his rights.
"I'm you," he said. "I'm just saying I'm not going to take it anymore ... I'm fighting for your freedoms."
Brown said it's only a matter of time before everyone who stands up to the U.S. government ends up in his shoes.
"Your time is coming up pretty soon," he said. "If you don't go along with the Free Masons, they'll attack you too." Brown, who says he now adheres only to the laws of the creator, sharply criticized state and local police officers, calling them "candy a----" who don't think for themselves.
"They really are babies," he said. "They're mindless little ... They're nothing like the police we had 15 years ago."
Brown declined to say how many supporters were staying with him and his wife, Dr. Elaine Brown, but he did say a "huge raft" of 20-somethings have passed through his doors over the past few months. "The sleeping giant is waking up," he said.
Brown said he doesn't care about warrants or court orders, because he doesn't believe he's a criminal. If he committed a crime, he said, he would turn himself in.
"This is just paper," he said. "This is fiction. The entire American government is fiction. We created it, didn't we?" Brown said he does not plan to surrender to authorities.
"We're a very reciprocal people. You do us good, we're going to do you good. You do us bad, we're going to do you bad," he said. "... This whole thing is a joke, but they'll kill me because of this joke."

Our government is collaborating with the very same terrorists it claims to be fighting, and by doing so, it is placing its own citizens in danger, stripping itself of virtually all credibility, and undermining international efforts to prevent future attacks.

More Government Sponsored Terror Declassified
British government documents reveal Israeli involvement in 1976 PFLP hijacking
Newly declassified British intelligence documents have revealed that British diplomats believed that the hijacking of an Israel-bound plane in 1976 by a Palestinian resistance group was aided and abetted by Shin Bet, the Israeli security agency, in order to criminalize the Palestine Liberation Organization and provide justification for continued Israeli military occupation of Palestinian land.
As revealed in the Jerusalem Post yesterday, the document, released by the National Archives, was addressed to the Foreign Office on 30 June 1976 and was written while the crisis was unfolding.
DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy wrote:
"According to his information, the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Beit.
"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans.
"Their nightmare is that after the November elections, one will witness the imposition in the Middle East of a Pax Americana, which will be the advantage of the PLO (who will gain international respectability and perhaps the right to establish a state on evacuated territories) and to the disadvantage of the Refusal Front (who will be squeezed right out in any overall peace settlement and will lose their raison d'etre) and Israel who will be forced to evacuate occupied territory).
"Hence the unholy alliance of the hijacking.
"My contact said the PFLP had attracted all sorts of wild elements, some of whom had been planted by the Israelis."
Hijackers seized the plane shortly after it took off from Athens on June 27. The plane was diverted first to Benghazi, Libya, where it was refuelled before to going on to Entebbe airport in Uganda. The siege lasted eight days whereupon remaining hostages, about 100 Jewish Israelis and internationals, were freed when the Israeli military raided the airport on July 3rd, killing 3 hostages, 20 Ugandan soldiers, and all seven hijackers.
The Israeli military destroyed 1/3 of the Ugandan Air Force during their massive assault on the airport. The commander of the rescue team, Yoni Netanyahu, brother of current opposition head Binyamin Netanyahu (Likud) was also killed.
The revelations from the British diplomats concerned show that false flag and state sponsored terror has long been considered and used as political tool by Western governments and intelligence agencies.
Israel is no exception, its history is replete with illustrative examples of Mossad and Shin Bet manufactured terrorism, from the Lavon Affair in 1954 to the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre (which some German officials believed was a covert operation that spawned a vicious Mossad crackdown on Palestinian resistance), to Mossad's nurturing of Hamas to the discovery of fake “al-Qaeda in Palestine” cells in 2002.

An alleged plot to blow up fuel tanks, terminal buildings and fuel lines running beneath Kennedy International Airport has all the hallmarks of being another staged terror alert, having never advanced beyond a rudimentary planning stage while being prodded and provocateured by a paid government informant.
In every single major terror sting we have researched in the west since 9/11, not one single plot has been absent the ingredient of a government provocateur, save the cases that were outright manufactured by imaginative government propagandists in alliance with the corporate media.
In this case, the provocateur was "An informant with a criminal history including drug trafficking and racketeering agreed to work with investigators on the case, in exchange for payments and a reduced sentence," according to the New York Times.
Officials have refused to say how they became aware of the plot in the first place, but in every previous case of this nature we have found that it is the government agent provocateur who radicalizes the group and formulates the plot. The cover story is that the group is infiltrated by the informant having already planned the attack but as more details emerge, inevitably the plot always reveals itself as an artificial creation on behalf of the intelligence services.
What's the motive? The war on terror is the most politically exploited concept since the cold war. The propaganda boon from hoodwinking Americans into thinking they are constantly under threat from terrorists is unsurpassed. On the very day that this alleged plot was announced, Rudy Giuliani was already using it to inflate his presidential campaign.
In addition, the new head of the Arkansas Republican Party, Dennis Milligan, told a reporter this past weekend that America needs to be attacked by terrorists so that people will appreciate the work that President Bush has done to protect the country.
Once again we learn that "the plot was only in a preliminary phase and the conspirators had yet to lay out detailed plans or obtain financing or explosives," and yet the event is reported by a jingoistic and frothing media as if an imminent attack on the scale of 9/11 has been averted.
But as always, the devil is in the details, because even if the group had managed to acquire the financing and explosives to enact the plot, it would have been unsuccessful, due to "safety shut-off valves would almost assuredly have prevented an exploding airport fuel tank from igniting all or even part of the network."
It appears that part of the agenda in hyping the alleged plot is to undermine Hugo Chavez, since the ringleader, Russell Defreitas, has links to Jamaat al-Muslimeen, a Muslim group headed up by Imam Yasin Abu Bakr, and in turn Bakr has been affiliated with Chavez.
As Kurt Nimmo writes, Neo-Con websites are already exploiting these tenuous links to demonize Hugo Chavez, who - whatever you think of his domestic policies - has been a constant thorn in the side of the Globalists and was subject to an attempted CIA coup in 2002.
Defreitas is described by one law enforcement official as “a sad sack” and “not a Grade A terrorist,” who would have been incapable of carrying out any attack. A friend described him as "not smart enough" to have carried out the attack.
In several other cases, we see a pattern where near-retarded individuals are used as patsies for terror plots orchestrated by intelligence agencies because they are easily manipulated and cannot defend themselves after the fact.
From out of nowhere, Defreitas goes from embracing American culture and enjoying jazz music to dressing in traditional Muslim garb and referring to himself as Mohammed while planning a devastating attack due to his supposed hatred of the west.
The basic tenet that the terror threat has been over-hyped and magnified a thousand-fold for political propaganda is proven alone by documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act that show only 0.0015 percent of the total number of cases filed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security were terrorism related, despite the fact that the Bush administration has repeatedly asserted that it is the primary focus of the DHS.
As more details leak out, there seems little doubt that the JFK airport plot will dissipate into nothing more than another hyped terror alert - coddled, molded, and directed by the government, before being unleashed on an increasingly skeptical American public in another vain attempt to prop up the flagging legitimacy of the "war on terror".
Reading between the lines in this article, it appears that if we were to abolish Homeland Security and the FBI, there wouldn't be any domestic terrorism. Of course, the last time someone (JFK) set out to abolish the CIA, he was assassinated by the CIA. Just protecting their jobs, I suppose.
